Validating Fields

The first field on my form is a required text field. When I Preview PDF and hit the submit button I get the default error message.

I would like the form to display the Empty Message instead. How do I do that. JavaScript?

The empty message field doesn't work as you expect. The empty field message will only be displayed if you enter data into the field - leave it, then come back and remove the data. Then your message will be displayed. Otherwise the validation message will be displayed.

If I want a message to display when the user clicks submit, I need to write JavaScript to handle that?

You can write script on the validate event of the field and if you return true or false the message will appear but I think the generic message will always appear whether there is 1 field validation problem or more than 1.
